It’s Trucks and Oil Rigs and Saying Goodbye

It’s trucks colliding,
smashing metal
against metal,
grinding rubber
into dust.

It’s oil rigs exploding,
black smoke spewing,
fire blooming into ash.

It’s moving away
to places unknown,
with people unseen.

It’s saying goodbye
when you just said hello
and waving at loss
from behind a window.

It’s broken hearts
melting into shattered limbs
while pieces of our souls
get lost in the fray.

It’s darkness and light,
wholes and halves.

It’s me without you
and you without me.

It’s a pair who is
separate,
divided,
and alone.

It’s our lives
on the platter
and all we can do is eat.

So…yeah. I don’t like the ending but I’m too tired to fight with it. 🙂
